Madden NFL & How to Play

As of now, the first game FIYA plans on introducing to our eSports program in the fall is Rocket League!

Rocket League is a vehicular soccer video game best described as "soccer but with rocket-powered cars" and was developed and published by the San Diego-based developer, Psyonix. The game has earned a number of industry awards, and not to mention has seen over 10 million sales and 40 million+ players since its launch in 2018. It's also a professionally adopted esport game, with professional players participating worldwide in competitions.

 RULES & OBJECT OF THE GAME 

The object of the game for Rocket League is the exact same for regular soccer. The team with the most goals, wins! The only difference? Instead of a field full of human players and goalies, you're playing 3 v 3, no goalies, and your avatars are rocket-powered cars; and instead of a soccer ball, it's a 'ball' that's much larger than the cars. Players control their rocket-powered car and use it to hit the ball towards their opponent's goal area to score goals. Again, in a way it resembles a soccer game, but with elements similar to a demolition derby.

Each player's car has the ability to: jump to hit the ball while in mid-air; pick up a speed boost by passing over marked spaces on the field (which enables the car to quickly cross the field); use the added momentum to hit the ball; use a boost while mid-air to propel their car forward in flight (allowing players to hit the ball in mid-air); perform quick dodges; or ram into another player's car to destroy it. If a player's car is "destroyed" in such manner, using their car will be paused temporarily and then respawns moments later to continue play.

Sound complicated? it's a lot easier than it seems! So for an extremely thorough visual breakdown on how to play, check out this "Ultimate Guide" and tutorial to Rocket League" as posted on YouTube by "Neat Mike", a popular Rocket League player and enthusiast.
